Epic Games today announced a licensing deal to incorporate GameSpy’s suite of online technology into Unreal Engine 3. Under the terms of the agreement, the technology will be immediately available to any publishers or developers that license Unreal Engine 3.
The partnership will span both the PC and PlayStation 3 platforms within Unreal Engine 3, enabling PlayStation 3 and PC online functionality. This feature, along with communication tools and competition applications, will also be available to Unreal Engine 3 licensees.
“Over the past months we have fully integrated a broad suite of GameSpy online technology in Unreal Engine 3 and have built a fantastic working relationship with Epic. We look forward to extending that relationship with a number of new technologies customized for Unreal Engine 3 to be introduced over the next 12 months,” said Jamie Berger, senior vice president of consumer products and technology for IGN Entertainment.
